NPR well rid of Smiley, it seems

I've never sampled the radio stylings of Tavis Smiley; but, to judge from this report of his contract battles with NPR, I don't think I'd have lingered long:
What NPR is apparently upset about is not that I would not negotiate, but that I wouldn't acquiesce. I do not do my best work in chains and shackles. For black kids and brown kids yet unborn, I felt I had to say no. They were being disrespectful.

Sounds like that race card has had quite a bit of use...
